Wildlife charity’s thanks to National Lottery players

This December, Northumberland Wildlife Trust will be joining hundreds of visitor attractions throughout the United Kingdom to say a massive thank- you to players of the National Lottery for the support they have given heritage, and a number of Trust projects, through Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) grants over the years.

As part of the week-long #ThanksToYou National Lottery celebration, the wildlife charity’s Hauxley Wildlife Discovery Centre on Druridge Bay will be offering free tea or coffee to National Lottery players between Monday 3 - Wednesday 5 December.

To receive their free tea or coffee, all players need to do is present a lottery ticket (including both National Lottery draw-based games) or National Lottery Scratchcard - either a hard copy ticket or a digital ticket in the Lookout Café.  

Also available for a limited time only will be ‘Heritage’ scones - two varieties of prosecco and festive fruit scones that are proving to be very popular with Trust volunteers who have been sampling them before they go on sale.

Ros Kerslake, Chief Executive of the Heritage Lottery Fund, said: “December is a wonderful time to experience the UK’s rich, diverse and exciting heritage, which has been transformed by more than £7.8bn National Lottery funding since 1994.  This is a small gesture of thanks and a way of giving something back to the people who buy tickets.”

Alex Lister, Druridge Bay Living Landscape Manager, says: “Thanks to National Lottery players we’ve been able to do some fantastic work over the Druridge Bay area over the last couple of years.

“Hauxley Wildlife Discovery Centre forms a big part of that and is testament to how valuable National Lottery players are.  So whether you play in a syndicate, buy a ticket or ticket each week or have only ever played once, why not come along to Hauxley,  enjoy a free tea or coffee, perhaps savour a ‘Heritage’ scone and see for yourself how you have helped us?”
